The Esports Integrity Commission has reported that they are now actively investigating at least fifteen serious cases of match fixing in this season of Mountain Dew League hosted on ESEA. For those of you that forgot, MDL is basically when teams go from the warm kiddie pool of semi-pro and amateur gaming to the deep blue waters of professional play. Basically, if you play MDL, you're kind of starting to be a big deal.

They are now looking at the past 18 months of play and investigating the potential match fixing that might've taken place in that time period. Teams, start sweating, 'cause it is about to go down. Multiple people have reacted to the announcement from ESIC over on Twitter, like Mnmzzz - admin at Liquipedia and writer for Dust2US - for example, expressing that they are glad their reports and/or what they have heard and seen is being investigated. Besides, we all know what happened the last time players threw matches.

ESIC have stated that they will be releasing their final verdict four weeks from now, and it is therefore just a matter of time before the iBUYPOWER lads get some new friends on their VACation.  That is if Valve bothers to do something, of course.
